Quilts of Valor Foundation®

The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation® is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor®.

What defines “touched by war”?
The veteran who processed the paperwork on those Wounded or killed in action, has been touched by war.

The officer who knocks on the door of a family, bearing bad news, has been touched by war.

The veteran who never had to go into battle, but saw friends come home for burial, has been touched by war.

Every Soldier, Marine, Sailor, Airman, Guardsman, male or female, has been touched by war in different ways. 

We are not to judge how war has affected them.
We are only to Thank them in a “Very Special” way, by wrapping them in loving warmth with a Quilt of Valor®.

Since the founding of the Quilts of Valor Foundation® in November 2003, over 188,000 Quilts have been awarded.

The Quilts of Valor Foundation® has over 8,000 members and volunteers who make these quilts without any financial compensation. 
They operate on donations and their own funds.

All materials, thread, patterns, shipping and other expenses incurred are paid for by the individuals who hand make each loving and unique quilt. 

Thank You to Frank Roach American Legion Post 34 and everybody who made this awards ceremony successful.

Thank You to Rolling Thunder Chapter One South Carolina for being a “Personal Assistant” to our Honored Veterans. 

The major function of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is to publicize the POW-MIA issue: 
To educate the public that many American Prisoners of War were left behind after all previous wars and to help correct the past and to protect the future Veterans from being left behind should they become Prisoners Of War-Missing In Action.

Family Scouting Coming to AUMC

You may have heard it on the news, but this fall, the Boy Scouts of America will allow girls to participate in the Cub Scout Program, ages 5-10.  In 2019, the program will be expanded to allow older girls to enroll in a program that runs parallel to the Boy Scout program, and will allow girls to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.  If you have any questions or concerns, please ask me and I will do my best to address them.  You may learn more with this flyer from the Boy Scouts.

In the meantime, three dates to remember.
February 10th:  Valentines Dinner (More to come)
February 11th:  Church-wide Breakfast to support Scouting Program
February 11th:  Scouting Sunday will be observed during the 10:30 Service

Thank you for your continued support of our Scouting Ministries.

Wayne Miller

 

Are You Spreading Seeds?

Have you ever told a friend about a good restaurant experience? Have you ever shared a picture or someone else's post on Facebook? We often ask ourselves, "How Do We Grow Our Church? How Do We Increase Attendance? Or "How Do We Reach More Children and Get Them To Come To Church? If you have been in Church these past two Sundays, you have heard Pastor Steve talk about the Master Gardener, spreading seeds. Did you know that you can "Spread Seeds" as well by simply using Facebook. Let me explain how:

  1. Log into your Facebook Account and in the Search Bar, look for Aldersgate United Methodist Church, and look for the one in Rock Hill. Or you could also type www.facebook.com/aumcrockhill in your browser address bar and hit enter to open the page.
  2. Under the picture of the Church, click the button that says "Follow." From this point going forward, every time a posting is made by the Church, you will then see it on your timeline when you visit your Facebook Page, you don't even have to go to the Church Page often.
  3. When you see a posting on your timeline from Aldersgate, click the "Share" button and all your "Friends" on Facebook will also see that posting on their Timelines.
  4. You may also write a short note when you Share an Item. This would be a great opportunity to ask your friends to attend or to share it themselves so we can reach as many people in the Rock Hill area.


Every time you simply hit the "Share" button, you are doing your part in a small way to Spread God's Seeds. Let the Master Gardener nurture and grow those seeds. Who knows, something as simple as using Facebook, might be part of the answer to all those questions mentioned earlier.
